Morgan Ashurst has been awarded an £11 million contract by the University of Teesside to build a four-storey undergraduate teaching facility for trainee dentistry professionals and sports therapists.
The building, named Centuria South, will be sited next to the existing Centuria building in Wilton Street, Middlesbrough.
It will feature a domed ceiling in the sports therapy centre and a full-height glass atrium in the reception area. It will be clad in zinc and wood with coloured renders.
The new facility will accommodate a dental suite as well as a sports therapy centre, which will include a hydrotherapy pool and training areas.
The project is being managed by Evolve, based in Harrogate. The architect is CPMG, based in Nottingham. Work is scheduled to be completed in April 2010.
